Two Facebook accounts: one personal, one business. What are the risks?

I've been asked to create a Facebook page for a department in my institution. I already have a personal account. In this circumstance, I understand that Facebook wants people to create pages using their personal account (and use that personal account to administer the page).
However, if a page is created using a business account, and that business account is created from a different (work) email address, what is the likelihood that this will cause trouble for the accounts or the page later?
I guess what I'm asking is whether the "one account per person and one person per account" is strictly enforced, or if it's one of those things that everyone does anyway because it's difficult for FB to detect.
A follow-up question as well: I'm aware that other pages have been created with this method already. Should admin rights for the page be transferred over to a personal account and the duplicate business account be deleted, or is it no big deal?
